Jamestown Community College hikes tuition for next year

JAMESTOWN – Annual tuition at Jamestown Community College in 2016-17 will increase $110 to $4,630 for New York residents, college officials said.

The college’s trustees approved a $33.6 million budget on Tuesday that includes the 2 percent tuition hike, as well the elimination of vacant positions. The 2016-17 spending plan is 6 percent smaller than the 2015-16 budget, due mostly to a decline in enrollment.

But JCC President Cory L. Duckworth said the integrity of the college’s educational quality, programs and services remains intact.

“JCC is not alone in facing an enrollment decline,” Duckworth said. “Although we have a smaller budget for the coming year, JCC has a healthy financial foundation that ensures our strong presence in the region.”
